First in the line is the Neffos C5L, an entry-level smartphone that comes with a 4.5-inch display with FWVGA resolution. Under its core is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset with a 1.1GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU and Adreno 304 GPU, coupled with 1GB of RAM. Furthermore, the C5L features 8GB of internal storage, which can also be expanded via its microSD card slot. It sports 2,000mAh of battery, and it comes with LTE connectivity for faster Internet connectivity. As for its photography prowess, it's outfitted with an 8MP primary shooter and a 2MP selfie snapper.
The Neffos C5, on the other hand, is the company's midrange offering. It comes with a 5-inch IPS display with a 720p resolution, and it's equipped with a MediaTek MT6735 chipset with four cores of Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.3GHz a piece, Mali-T720 MP2 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Its internal storage also gets a bump at 16GB, which can also be expanded via its microSD card slot. It comes with 2,200mAh battery, as well as LTE connectivity, and it also features an 8MP primary camera, as well as a 5MP front-facing shooter.
The Neffos C5 Max is the company's top-of-the-line offering. It also happens to be the biggest with its 5.5-inch IPS display that features a full HD resolution. Furthermore, it's powered by a MediaTek MT6753 chipset with a 1.3GHz octa-core A53 CPU, Mali-T720 MP2 GPU and 2GB of RAM. A 16GB of expandable storage, LTE connectivity and a 5MP selfie shooter are also onboard, but it gets a heftier 3,035mAh battery and a bumped-up 13MP primary camera.
All three handsets have Android 5.1 Lollipop running, as well as what seems to be the company's proprietary launcher. Pricing and availability, however, are yet to be officially confirmed.
